Your first step is going to be to analyze the Biblical quote and make sure you thoroughly understand it and can extract a thematic idea from it. This you will then compare to one of the themes in Heroes, Gods and Monsters. Of course, you will have to have read Heroes, Gods and Monsters well enough to be able to recognize its themes and find a comparison or contrast between the theme for the quote and a theme from the book. One thematic statement for the quote might be this: God opposes arrogance and the oppression of innocent people (of course you quotation is not complete as only two out of seven items are listed here).
